Delighted with the service from this highly professional business. We had a very large tree that needed to be removed as it was causing damage to a building and we are in a conservation area. Mike and his team organised everything, from dealing with the local authority and obtaining permission,to removal of the tree and stump. A complete and hassle free process.Thank you.

It was really refreshing to deal with a company that was professional from our first point of contact and then the whole way through the job to conclusion. Great team in the office involved with the arrangements and then continued with the on site team who made sure we were updated on progress throughout the course of the job being carried out. I would highly recommend this company.
We are very pleased with the way in which a problem was dealt with that had occurred from some earlier work in our garden. The South Down Tree Services sent a team very quickly and resolved the issue. Many thanks.

Pruning trees where a tree preservation order is in place

Our highly qualified team was established in 2017. In that time, we have worked with all kinds of customers. From homeowners with one or two problem trees, through to those on large corporate or commercial estates with trees that require regular maintenance. We’ve also built up a huge range of experience of working on trees which are subject to tree preservation orders (TPOs).

Pruning trees with tree preservation orders

If you need an expert tree surgeon to work on a tree that is under a TPO, fear not. We can advise on the best approach. And do bear in mind that if the tree presents an immediate danger, work can take place with minimal red tape. We can also remove dead branches. And even if you want to carry out more complicated work, we can advise on the “Application to Tree Works” form that needs to be submitted to the local council.

Tree pruning within conservation areas

We’re also here to help with tree pruning for trees that are situated in a conservation area. Conservation areas exist to protect the character and appearance of a specific area – though this is most often considered a barrier to altering buildings, it does also have an impact on works planned on trees. We can help you to establish exactly what permissions are needed, and ensure that all works are carried out quickly and compliantly.

Tree pruning experts nearby

We use the latest equipment and methods to provide a fast and effective tree trimming service. Our experts know exactly how to trim and shape trees in a way that helps the tree remain stable, and minimises the risk of infection of damage at the junctions where branches are removed. Whether you want to remove heavy branches to prevent accidental damage, or you want to help a young tree establish itself through effective pruning and growth management, we can help.

Tree topping, lopping and branch removal

Regardless of the type of trees you need help with, we are here for you. We have huge experience of pruning apple trees, plum trees, cherry trees, fruit trees of all varieties. Not to mention topping larger trees such as oaks, conifers, bay, and birch trees. Removing over grown, problematic branches and shaping trees is all part of our service offering. If you have any questions or are unsure what you need then contact our friendly team. We can help.
